The City –Wide Tenant Association (CTA) of the Chelsea Collaborative hosted the second annual Mother’s Day Celebration this past Friday, May 8, for the tenants in the Margolis and Mace Public Housing Developments. CTA aims at educating and strengthening tenants in public housing through tenant councils, so that they themselves can defend their rights as needed. At t
he same time they focus on creating a sense of community within these developments and help build confidence for these low income families.
This past Friday that’s exactly what was accomplished, as elderly, disabled and many home bound women, some with limited communication with family or friends, got access to a team of volunteers that gave them total makeovers for Mother’s Day. Pampering them with new hair styles, manicures and even massages, these ladies left feeling fabulous with a huge boost of self esteem and energy, coordinators said.
